This book is a compilation of 12 chapters about the emerging educational neuroscience field. Some chapters were very eye-opening, such as the ones about reading and math. Each provide excellent citations and overviews of what is known about the topics. However, the creativity and arts chapters struggle a bit. Also, this book was edited in 2010, and is probably becoming less relevant as time passes. I have to hope that there has been more published research in this field.
